Warrant out for your arrest, how long would you have to stay in jail if you turn yourself in?

For something like a suspended license or other moving violations , you go to jail for one day and are taken to court the second day(up to 72 hours), for a bail hearing. If you have bail you get out until your hearings. If it is something more serious, you may not get bail and will have to sit in jail until court hearings are over.

Depends on the state, and the crime. If it's nothing major, like a well past due speeding ticket, if you just pay it off, the warrant goes away. If it's a more major charge, it's possible that the sentence would be reduced, or a probation would be used instead of the maximum jail time.

How long you stay depends on the crime that you "allegedly" committed. A self surrender is noted and looked upon favorably by most courts. If a misdemeanor and you are not determined to be a flight risk, you may be conditionally released (released on your own recognizance with out bail). Really depends on the crime, state you live in and local laws as to whether or not you may bail your self out until your court date. Make a call to the authorities and ask these questions. Also, how are you sure there is a warrant for your arrest?
